Herman Johnson (6-7, 382) was a two-time first-team All-SEC selection while at LSU, also earning first-team All-American honors from the Associated Press as a senior.
The largest player to ever wear the Tigers uniform, Johnson started the final 38 games of his college career at both left and right guard. He started all 13 games at left guard during his senior season helping the Tigers to average 368.1 yards per game and 30.9 points per game.
The Denton, TX native finished his career by appearing in 52 games and collecting 237 knockdown blocks in his five seasons at LSU. He remains the largest baby ever born in the state of Louisiana weighing in at 15 pounds and 14 ounces.
Johnson becomes the first member of Arizona's eight-player 2009 draft class to agree to contract terms. Johnson is projected to play guard this season for the Cardinals.
